Lately I have been dealing with a teething baby. To translate, a teething baby is like dealing with a constant scratch on a chalkboard.
It sounds like waaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh 23.5 hours of the day. That is not even the slightest exaggeration whatsoever. Sometimes I wonder if aliens took my awesome sweet smiley baby and left me with some other woman’s problems.
Sigh. Only 17 years and 4 months to go, right?
And few things can soothe a teething baby:
- A big sister
- Anything you leave on the ground including shoes, keys, and grass
and I recently discovered:
I know you are shaking your head right now.
“You gave your 8 month old a Popsicle??”
Not exactly. I gave my 8 month old, my daughter, and every neighborhood kid on the block a Yosicle (psst..and I didn’t even ask their parents first).
Would you begrudge this crowd a little spring break fun?

Btw, it was absolutely hysterical to see him hold the Yosicle with his hands. He was registering how cold it was but he wanted to eat it so badly that he was toughing it out.

Btw, this summer I am one of several awesomesauce bloggers to be an ambassador for Popsicle and introduce this new line of tasty treats to all of y’all. Yousicle is a Popsicle “pop” and yogurt combined “yo” treat that makes up the Yosicle. There are four new boxes of flavors on the market that include this brand. I am going to give you a chance to win a six month supply for your kids as well, so be on the look out for that. In the mean time visit these URLs to learn more:
Oh, and a wet wash cloth also works for quieting down a teething baby…and cleaning him up after some outdoor fun. I do think we lost that onesie to some serious stains though.
It was a small price for some peace.
Do you ever use cold treats as a teething soother?
Oh, and feel free to pass on your other tips if you have some miracle worker idea….he still has the top ones to break through!!! I need all the help I can get.
